This is a very simple and yummy side dish. I learned in while living in France from an old Mediterranean lady. This is always a hit!

I made this for a potluck and it was a hit! After marinating over night, the vinegar and onions were no longer overpowering and became almost sweet. It was super easy and I'll definately make it again!

This is my favorite way to eat tomatoes! Light and fresh, the good tomatoe taste comes through. Use good Balsamic. I sometimes top with crumbled feta or blue cheese and black olives, use fresh basil confetti for added color and flavor. Perfection!

Great recipe and simple too...Perfect for Summer..I used Olive Oil that has been flavored with a crushed garlic clove and it added just a little extra.
